What to Wear: 

Casual clothing can be worn during the weekend, but please check the weather a few days before you arrive as Chicago area weather can still be quite cool in June. Also, our Executive Office is just blocks from Lake Michigan which tends to make the temperature feel a little cooler. Please bring at least a light sweater, the conference room at the Executive Office can sometimes be chilly.                                                              

Alumnae Chapter Academy Preparation:

  • Review your available resources before arriving (manuals, "mailables file" chapter bylaws, etc.).
  • Bring examples of event invitations, chapter newsletters, social media posts and anything else that you may need help with or is an example of a best practice.
  • Bring a note book or laptop to take notes.
